I found this recipe on Nom Nom Paleo’s blog and thought I’d give it a try. It was adapted from Primal Blueprint’s recipe, and I adapted it a bit more to accomodate what I had on hand. While I am not a full-blown Paleo dieter, I do try to limit wheat and dairy, but the lack of sweet treats stinks. These get pretty close and satiate my sweet tooth to keep me on course. They are extremely easy to make too- taking just 10 mins from start to finish.
- 8 prunes
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/2 cup pecans
- ½ cup roasted unsalted macadamia nuts
- 2 tablespoons walnut oil (may also use coconut oil, melted)
- ½ cup diced fresh strawberries
- ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Pulse the prunes in the food processor until a paste forms. Add the nuts and pulse until finely chopped. Add the walnut oil and pulse until incorporated. Scoop the mixture unto a bowl and add the Strawberries. Gently mix. Form 12 dough balls by rolling in your hands. Dredge the balls in coconut. Refrigerate to harden.
